Talladega Veterinary Clinic
There prices are fair the man that administered the shots and meds which I believe is the vet he was very nice and he listened to concerns I had the lady at the front desk is pretty nice to but at least 2 of the nurses I met were just as rude as ever telling me to get my hands off my own cat and back up and get out of the way there was a nurse holding my cat and the vet was trying to give her a pill and she was trying to scratch and bite him so I was helping her hold her paws so he could give her the other tablet and that rude nurse walks in and tells the nurse I was helping to get a hold of that cat and tells me to let go of her and move and to back up against the wall in the corner she was only there for 1 booster shot and a dewormed dose if I want to touch my animal and stand beside her I can I pay enough to get that right the nurses up there are just snarky and rude when I went up there to get there to get my pets rabies vaccination the nurse I had was rude then to when the vet would come in and I would try to ask him sum questions them rude nurses just would cut me off and try to push me out of the way and wouldn't let me speak they treat u like ur incompetent and in there way there so mean

Sleeping Giant Veterinary Clinic
My mother and I have taken our animals to Sally and Tim Smith at the Sleeping Giant for as long as they have been open. They take excellent care of your pets with love and attention and care that is affordable and fair. Sally Smith the vet comes out and explains everything in detail to you about your animal and gives you step by step instructions on their care. She will even call on her off day some times to check on you and your animal and see if you have any questions or problems. She is a great Vet and that is a wonderful clinic. Everyone that works there are caring and gentle and attentive to not only your pets needs but to your needs as the owner. I highly recommend this clinic.
Tips & Advices
Most 24-hour clinics do not allow owners to stay with their pets overnight. However, many do have specific visiting hours or will let owners see their pets at any point during the day. In addition, owners can call most clinics at any time for an update on their pet's well being.
  • Important phone numbers, especially those of the the veterinary clinic, the animal hospital or emergency clinic, and the poison control center
  • A book detailing pet first-aid steps
  • Copy of medical records
  • Nylon leash
  • Muzzle (only use if pet is not vomiting and has no difficulty breathing)
  • Absorbent gauze
  • Nonlatex disposable gloves
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting only at the recommendation of a veterinarian
  • Milk of magnesia (to absorb poison only at the recommendation of a veterinarian)
Find a 24-hour animal hospital that provides emergency services within your area. Keep the facility's contact information in a place that's easy to locate, such as the refrigerator, address book, or smartphone. Most veterinary clinics operate on standard business hours and are not equipped to handle emergencies.
Veterinary clinics operate on a smaller scale than animal hospitals. The latter are more likely open 24 hours and provide emergency services. The former generally operate on typical office hours and only perform wellness exams and minor surgeries. Veterinary clinics also do not generally perform laboratory tests on site.
The specifics vary depending on the type of visit. For a wellness exam, bring:
  • Medical records
  • The type or brand of food the pet eats
  • Medication (including flea, tick, and heartworm medication).
If the animal needs medical treatment, the following may be helpful depending on the situation:
  • Fresh stool sample
  • Vomit sample
  • Video of the pet engaging in abnormal behavior
  • Substance the pet may have ingested
